New arena, new-ish looking logo, new jersey manufacturer and now a new ad deal for those jerseys. The Detroit Pistons have announced a deal with Flagstar Bank to wear sponsorship on Pistons uniforms starting next season.

Details were not available for the terms or amount of the deal.

The NBA announced a pilot program to sell advertisements on jerseys starting with this season. To alleviate fans’ concerns that their favorite players would be turned into walking billboards the NBA restricts ad space¬†only one patch that is 2.5 x 2.5 inches on a shoulder of the uniform.

The Pistons become the ninth different team to acquire a jersey sponsor for this upcoming season, joining the 76ers (Stubhub), Nets (Infor), Celtics (General Electric), Kings (Blue Almond), Jazz (Fight for 5), Cavaliers (Goodyear), Timberwolves (Fitbit) and the Magic (Disney).

Does seeing ads on jerseys make you see red as a fan or is it something you can stomach?
